Workshop on “HIGH SENSITIVITY ONLINE MONITOR FOR Rn-222 in air” (14 October, 2015)

Grzegorz Zuzel, from the M. Smoluchowski Institute of Physics in Poland, gave a workshop to experiments users and members of the LSC staff, informing of the features and operation of an electrostatic detector able to monitor in real time the Rn-222 content in the air, in view of the new radon reduction system which will be installed at LSC in 2016.

DULIA-bio 2015 Workshop on Deep Underground Laboratories Integrated Activities in biology (13-14 October, 2015)

The workshop DULIA-bio (Deep Underground Laboratories Integrated Activities in biology) took place at the LSC premises on Oct 13 and 14, 2015. The aim of the workshop was to establish a common path for European underground laboratories in deep life studies and its application to astrobiology. The workshop goals are to spread interest in this research field, put together a new community working in underground laboratories and be the first of a series of meetings to be held in the four deep underground labs in Europe. Around 30 people attended this event that enjoyed talks from speakers of 15 institutions from 8 different countries.






11th Patras Workshop on Axions, WIMPS and WISPs (24 June, 2015)

The 11th Patras Workshop on Axions, WIMPs and WISPs was held in the city of Zaragoza (organized by UNIZAR) from June 22nd to 26th, 2015. One of its sessions was held at the LSC premises and included in the agenda a visit to the underground facilities. The workshop has continued this very rich series, reviewing recent theoretical advances, laboratory experiments and astrophysical and cosmological results regarding axions, WIMPs and WISPs.

International Meeting “Challenges for Agencies and Universities” (18-19 June, 2015)

This International Meeting, organized by the quality agencies of Aragon (ACPUA) and the Basque Country (Unibasq), had the aim of exchanging opinions and make a first evaluation by the agencies, universities and experts on the content and outreach of the main novelties, this implying the review of the European Directions and Criteria for the assurance of the quality. A visit to the underground LSC facilities was included in the program.






International Workshop MIS3 (Maine in Spain 3) (12-17 June, 2015)

Around 50 researchers from all around the world travelled to Canfranc to participate in some sessions in which they exchanged very specific knowledge and also learnt some aspects about the art, gastronomy and scenery of Canfranc and the Jacetania region. The scientific discussions turned around the molecular prokaryote biology, which refers to the “wonderful and unexpected things” which bacteria do. Amongst the parallel and complementary activities to these sessions it was highlighted the visit to the LSC after holding one of them at its premises.






Presentation of the Refurbishment Project of the “Casa de los Abetos” (26 March, 2015)

The architect in charge of the project, Mr. Basilio Tobías Pintre, presented the refurbishment project of the “Casa de los Abetos”, in the surroundings of the LSC Consortium, located at the Paseo de los Ayerbe. Such building is located in the area known as “Los Forestales” in Canfranc Estación and in its day it was used as living quarters for the engineers which were involved in the avalanche containment works for the Canfranc Station. The “Casa de los Abetos”, which belonged to the Government of Aragon, has been assigned to the Consortium of the Laboratorio Subterraneo de Canfranc to give it use within its activity.

Workshop on “Investigation of Muon flux in Hall A” (18-20 February, 2015)

Researchers from Russia and Finland met at the LSC premises for a Workshop on the “Investigation of Muon Flux in the LSC underground site”. Discussions included simulations of muon field on the LSC underground site and a visit to the underground laboratory to see the detector.

2nd “CEMES - INA – LPCNO” TALEM2 Meeting (12-13 February, 2015)

The INA (Instituto Univesitario de Investigación en Nanociencia de Aragón) organized the second TALEM meeting between the CEMES - INA & LPCNO, at the LSC premises on the 12th and 13th of February. Around 26 French and Spanish researchers meet at the LSC meeting room. As part of their activities program a visit to our underground facilities was included.
